TOEFL: Test of English as a Foreign Language
TOEFL, like IELTS is a standard test for non-native English speaking individuals willing to study or work in English speaking countries. More than 9000 universities and immigration processes accept TOEFL as a standard for assessing English speaking skills of applicants. The test was introduced in 1964 catering to the need of standard tests to measure abilities of students to survive in foreign nationalities.
TOEFL can be attempted online (iBT: Internet based Test) or on paper (PBT: Paper Based Test), each variant restricted to areas. The TOEFL scores are valid for two years and acceptable across the world. The TOEFL is conducted 50 times a year and anyone can attempt the examinations any number of time; the only restriction being to take a 12 day gap between two consecutive tests.
